What might you get if you paired a handful of documentary filmmakers with expert web developers and told them they had 36 hours to re-invent the documentary for the web?
It’s no small task, obviously, but it’s a question we’re going to pose in August when we host our first POV Hackathon, which we’re announcing… right now!
Now all we need are some documentary filmmakers with a digital vision.
Is that you? Head over to the POV Hackathon page at pbs.org/pov/hackathon to get more information. (Online applications are due Friday, June 29, 2012 at 5 PM Eastern Time.)
Note: The hackathon weekend will take place from August 11 to 12, 2012, a Saturday morning to Sunday evening in Brooklyn, New York. Before applying, please consider that POV will not be paying travel, accommodations or expenses.
